- Since 2015, the California meteorological "water year" season measures rainfall totals from October 1 to September 30 of the following year.
- Snowfall and water equivalence is tricky to measure accurately with automated systems.  When you see news reports, they are measurements from observers using old fashioned rulers and "snow boards".  Our system will collect a couple of snowfall inches in the rain gauge, and then measure some of the water as it melts.  Bottom line -- we'll do our best to observe snowfall and manually adjust the water year totals to reflect the rainfall equivalence of our occasional snowfalls.
